Scores of Kashmir University students on Tuesday held a protest demonstration against the rape of a minor girl in Sumbal area of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district last week.
The students of various departments under the banner of Kashmir University Students Union while chanting slogans against the police demanded capital punishment to the accused person.
“We will not tolerate such heinous crimes in our society,” the students said. “We demand that there should be a death sentence for such crimes. The police should not provide refuge to the perpetrators who are involved in such barbaric crimes.”
The students claimed that the issue is being politicized and used as a vote bank.
While pressing that justice should be delivered in quick time to the victim a girl student said, “We hope this time justice would be given to the victim immediately.”
